This shot at the east end of Cliff is something of a classic in my opinion. It offers a great telephoto view of westbound coming around the curve on the approach to the grade crossing. Due to the blind curve, the crossing gates come down several seconds before the train is even visible. The grade crossing is for CO-72, which you can actually see above the train in the distance, headed east toward the Plains.
